later, guantanamo is not closed, even though that was an almost first day priority for president obama. he still says he would like to close guantanamo, just as george w. bush said he wanted to close guantanamo. we have congress to thank for the fact that it's still open. congress has blocked the president's options for closing that offshore prison. but notice also that not a single new terrorism suspect, not a single new prisoner has been added to guantanamo since president obama has been in office. people have left by a number of different means, but nobody knew has shown up since barack obama was sworn in as president. we have not been shipping people to guantanamo, even though the president has not been able to close it. we have not been shipping terrorism suspects anywhere, really. mostly because we haven't been capturing them mostly. we've been doing something else. since 2002, targeted killings, targeted missile strikes have killed as many as 4700 people, mostly in pakistan. the highest targeted killing not by a drone, but by a navy s.e.a.l. team was of course the killing of osa

? joining us now is oregon democratic senator ron wyden, who has repeatedly asked the obama administration bower drone policy. senator wyden, it's good to see you. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having me again. >> did you not in fact get what you had asked the president to give you and that you thought you would be getting this morning based on your conversation with the president last night? >> rachel, it's not clear. the fact is, and i went in first thing this morning, i was able to read some information that was helpful. i'm just not convinced yet that it is the full legal analysis that we need to do to do vigorous oversight. what today was really about is of course it was a nomination hearing for john brennan. but it ultimately was a question of upholding our system of checks and balances in government. and i think that system is out of whack these days and we've got to do some more for transparency and accountability in getting those checks and balances back. >> in terms of this specific program that you've been asking about the legal advice for, specifically targeting

. >> i probably will too. thanks for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago at this time when president obama was just starting his first term, news networks, including this one, made a somewhat unusual decision to show live on tv the arrival of one of the new cabinet secretaries at the department that she had just been appointed to lead. to broadcast live essentially a cabinet secretary's first day on the job. the reception that that cabinet secretary got that day was raucous. [ applause ] [ cheering ] a cabinet secretary starting work, right? it's not your typical multiple network life news event. but hillary clinton was never just some cabinet secretary, right? well, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton.
